I've been putting off writing a review for this story simply because I fear that whatever I write here will not do the story justice. 'Heart' is an emotional and heartwarming story, but also heavy due to its serious subject matter. It deals with two boys who meet in a mental institution. Written mainly from the point of view of one of the boys (Tyson), the story follows the two boys' struggles with their health, families and burdens from the past, and how they discover love in the process. The protagonists - as well as the supporting characters - are realistic and deep, and the writing is just brilliant.

You WILL cry often when you read this story, but you will love every second of it and ask for more.

A brilliant character study of two teens with mental illness, one born with the problem and one who has it foisted upon him by his upbringing:  This is their story behind the locked doors of an adolescent mental facility, and it showcases their interactions with a variety of people--doctors, nurses, social workers, relatives, fellow patients, and (of course) each other. It captivates to, and through, its shocking, but ultimately satisfying, denouement. At its core, it's a story of self discovery, personal strength, and the real meaning of love. I have never previously been motivated to write a review, but Heart is something special (I had the same excited feeling reading it that I sometimes experience when I read a book that later wins an award). Do yourself a favor and READ THIS BOOK!
